Posted 07 September 2009 - 05:37 PM

My laptop recently (two days ago) started popping up warnings that say "your computer is infected with 38 viruses) blah, blah, blah. Boxes pop up from Total Security showing a fake scan totaling to 38 infections of spyware, and telling me to download anit-virus protection from them. I did some research online and found that Total Security is a malware. I then came to this website and did a search of the forums to find a fix. I found an uninstall guide for Total Security and attempted to follow the instructions. I downloaded Process Explorer, renamed it to iexplorer.exe, ran it, and looked for the program TSC.exe to disable it, but it did not show up like described in the guide. I went ahead and downloaded the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as directed. When I told it to Scan, it scanned for about 4 seconds then just went away. When I try to run it again, I get an error message that says, "Windows can not access the specified devic, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
I had AVG 7.5 on my laptop prior to this. When this happened I downloaded AVG 8.5. I have tried many times now to update this, as it shows the last update was 06 June, 2009, but when I do, it just sits there, and I eventually get an error message that says something to the effect that the system could not perform the task because AVG.exe is infected with spyware.
My desktop has changd from my normal desktop to one that is totally white, with my normal icaons, and a big message that says "Active Desktop Recovery" followed by instructions on how to recover my desktop, nonw of which work.
I can not get into File Manager; it appears Total Security will not let me. Says I don't have permission.
What next? Thank you for your help!

Please make sure you disable ALL of your Antivirus/Antispyware/Firewall before running ComboFix.. Please visit HERE if you don't know how.. Please re-enable them back after performing all steps given..

Please download ComboFix by sUBs from HERE or HERE and save it to your Desktop.

During the download, rename Combofix to Combo-Fix as follows:

It is important you rename Combofix during the download, but not after.

**NOTE: If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:
  • Tools->Options->Main tab
  • Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".
After that, double-click and run Combo-Fix. Let it finish its job and post the log here

If ComboFix asked you to install Recovery Console, please do so.. It will be your best interest..

Note: DON'T do anything with your computer while ComboFix is running.. Let ComboFix finishes its job..


Please save this file to your Desktop. Double-click on it to run a scan. When it's finished, there will be a log called Win32kDiag.txt on your desktop. Please open it with notepad and post the contents here.
